    Christmas is almost here!

  • Vivec

    I can't wait! I hope they won't hold the update for Nexus S for too long.

    • Kaboo

      They shouldn't... the Nexus S better get an immediate or nearly immediate update as soon as the Galaxy nexus is released.

  • 9ooyan

    Still love my nexus one, but this is the first phone to pique my interest.

  • giese

    please please please push ics to the nexus family right away!
    you wanna fight fragmentation? alright then this is the first step

  • Chris Welch

    Booo, 2am GMT, there's no way I'll be able to stay up on a work night... particularly getting two kids ready in the morning. Ah well - I'll be here first thing to check out the news!

  • J.C.

    I feel the same about the Nexus S 4g. I'm more about the software than the hardware. There are going to be quite a few dual-core phone customers lighting up the websites and forums about the Ice Cream Sandwich update long after the Nexus series users get theirs. My next phone will be in the Nexus series as well.

    4 A.M. CEST? I don't think I will be awake at that time. Otherwise I won't be able to make it through my college lessons. Why did they have to choose Hong Kong for this event?

  • karim

    Damn...i will be at work with only 3g connection.
    Ah well....gives me something to do when i get home :)

  • Derek Chan

    damn too bad it's invite only or else i'll go there myself and help you get the stuff as early as possible!

  • dpneal

    Just a note for UK viewers, that means 3AM as we're currently still on British Summer Time.

    • MKChris

      True, I had forgot that... doesn't make it any better for me though.

  • Double

    Suppose i'll just skip sleep altogether. 4AM... :S

  • Deltaechoe

    Mmm, some west coast lovin' here. Just in time for me to finish dinner

  • bonstman

    Hope the Atrix 4G is quick to receive update can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jose

    I'm tired. I'm gonna die.

    Grumpfff, can't wait for the awesomeness to start

  • Steve

    Yay for spooky music on the Youtube channel.. And where is the chat you mentioned? I'd tune in but I don't know what to tune in to :P

  • Sune

    I'm wondering the same thing, and yeah, just noticed the awesome background music as well, haha!

  • http://www.podoco.net zach

    just a little bit longer...

  • BlackOmega

    I'am yet to see a presentation that starts on time. =/

  • Jason

    I thought everything said that this was starting at 10pm EDT? Not 9:30

  • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

    Sorry guys, doesn't look like CoverItLive supports open chat.

    • JF

      Ah sad thing, open up a gdoc and have everyone get in the chat! lol

  • asdf

    What's with the live youtube stream, anyone can see it?

    So far I love the simplicity..

  • Ribbys

    Awesome feature updates in ICS.

    Will be interesting to see if the camera is as good as they claim.

    On screen buttons are a big win. More screen for media and web use without making the device bigger than a 4.3" screen phone.

  • BlackOmega

    I'm just curious about the camera 1080p recording, can it compete with the 8mp camera on the galaxy s2?
    That's by far the best 1080p camera out there for recording videos, I wonder if this new 5mp camera can capture videos with the same quality.

    In the end, I really liked the new android version, also, I must say that probably phones with 256mb of ram won't run this new android, it's too graphic intensive. Time to say goodbye to my motorola milestone :(
